The King's Place is a working farm. Ian King, my husband, is a horticulturalist who prides himself in growing a selection of clivia¿s, bromeliads, various palms etc. in green houses and in the fields. He loves to share his ¿passion¿ with other interested guests and take them for walks through his nursery. We also have a small free range chicken farm with about 100 chickens and a growing number of Chinese geese. (We only sell the eggs!) The property has beautiful equestrian facilities where stables are fit for a King. We stable up to 12 horses. Ian's latest attraction to our "farm" is a Kio pond. Services for babies and young children: we organise baby sitters and supply cots and baby blankets. We have a pool fence around the patios of both Valley House 1 and Valley House 2 so your young children cannot get down to the pool.
